COVID-19 has had a major impact on so many aspects of our lives, forcing businesses, governments and academic institutions to rethink their processes and embrace the tools and solutions they may have shunned in the past. Those who lived by the adage “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” are finding that it is “broke” and are increasingly realising that technology can, in many ways, offer the “fix” we all need to survive this global pandemic.
In fact, some have argued that many of the technologies that underlie the fourth industrial revolution (4IR) – from cloud computing and artificial intelligence (AI) to the Internet of Things (IoT), digital collaboration and virtual workspaces – are actually being given a boost by the spread of the coronavirus.
With this new phase in technology-driven change and disruption well underway – promising productivity and efficiency, despite the chaos – organisations and people around the world have to find the right technologies to adapt and minimise interruptions.
Our latest eBook on the fourth industrial revolution will aid you on this journey. This resource was created to help organisations prepare themselves to handle everything the revolution has to offer. The eBook outlines some of the key technologies leading the fourth industrial revolution – from cloud, IoT and AI to advanced robotics, additive manufacturing, 5G and automation. In addition, the eBook highlights that cloud, in particular, has been labelled as an essential enabler of 4IR.
